RE: I Have A Problem With My Work Place (Rant Warning) (by LTU932 May 10 2006 in Non Aviation)

Well, queue the cargo bays and GAFs, because I finally got what I've wanted ever since I took up this promotion which cost me a lot of patience and mental sanity: I'm back in the nightshift! 4 months of fighting for this have paid off, as I'll start with my new-old shift next Monday! Big grin

Congrats!!!
I firmly believe that for ppl like you and me there cannot be better working times that the nightshifts. Convinced they are 150% healthier than early shifts that make you get up at 03:30am!



The Metro might be the Sub(optimal)way

Not really, my smoking habits will take care of that.  Silly  Wink

I don't work all night long until the morning (which would be the graveyard shift). Starting monday, my shift will be from 14:00 to 22:00, which means I can get up at 09:00, fully rested, with more time to go to the bank or even go shopping and with my night life back (I'm more of a night person than a day person). And the best: no more waking up at 05:00.  bigthumbsup

Don't expect to see me around that much (if at all) -- the contact link should still work, though.

Indeed they are. You can even go to a party after that and get totally wasted, then sleep off your drunkenness with plenty of time to spare to go to work. I know people who do that.  

After having it made official, I realise how one has to take opportunities. Before my interview and my being hired as translator, I was assured, almost promissed, that I'd get that shift, but then the interviewers (among them my current boss) took the oportunity of the time to change their minds. After that, all I got was a minor concession, which was to work only Fridays that shift and when I asked for daily nightshift, I was denied, although I got more concessions albeit temporary ones.

However, about three weeks ago, a discussion in the entire team came up because others wanted to come in earlier and a condition was set up, that one of these agents had to stay longer on at least one day. That's where my opportunity arose and I asked once more for me getting a full nightshift job. Only this time, I'd just have to wait until today to get confirmation of me going back to the nightshift in my current position and additionally as Level 2 agent.

The lesson I learned: sometimes you have to wait for the right time and once that time gives you the perfect opportunity, take it!
